Appeal Procedure of a Scholarship, Bursary or Award 

The basic principles governing the hearing of student appeals and grievances, as defined in the Mount Royal University Academic Calendar, apply to the appeal of a scholarship, bursary or award decision. You can appeal an unfavourable decision, in the year the award is applied for, if you can provide evidence that there was a mathematical miscalculation in determining your academic and/or financial eligibility or extenuating circumstances beyond your immediate control have prevented you from meeting the stated scholarship, bursary or award criteria.
